Forum: faqs Subject: Bringing Back OpenID

I originally posted this is the Forums Forum by accident, I had intended to post it in the F.A.Q. forum, so I am re-posting it here as I think it is more suitable for this forum.

I am wondering why OpenID support was removed from IA Account login. I much prefer OpenID to using a username and password, it is far more secure for one. I know there was a problem with the OpenID implementation, which I reported a while back but I would have expected this to have been fixed rather than remove OpenID support altogether.

Will OpenID support ever be coming back? Don't forget there is a new OpenID standard called OpenID Connect https://openid.net/connect/

so we yanked it. never felt great about it, but we have to cut some features over time.... 8-(
